Introducing a Crazy Idea

So the idea of a piece of serial fiction has been bouncing around in this head for a while now, but I was always convinced I lacked the strength to discipline myself and convinced I lacked the commitment and the ability to write linear without going back to edit, and then, this quote rammed me upside the head and a good look at my profile full of serial fanfiction clinched the deal.

Sunday Writing Stats

We spent the last so long adapting some of my fanfiction to original fiction, in addition to wrapping up some stories I had previously begun and doing a ficlet writing session to music. Adaptations:

  • Goddess of Computers
  • Dorm Daddy Driver's Ed
  • Square Root
  • Tech Support
  • At Your Altar

This last week, I wrote 6900+ words. My goal was 5000+. My retained words didn't beat the 5000+ goal, but there's always next week.

So, not that I expect a lot of people over here at this point, but I have consolidated my worldbuilding locale at Wikia. For my own sanity, I need a central location to dump story notes. It'll take a while to get all the ones I already have on there, but it's worth the effort.

"A Dream of Spring" sold to Every Day Poets. Will link when it goes online.

Got quite a few things up since the last time we talked, so here goes.

"Baker of Souls," about a woman who is defeated by her own failure; "A Pretty Word," an exploration of the operation of the uncommon Writers among the powerful of Breath; and "The Rule of Prayer," a short that had been hiding in the bottom of my inbox for forever. See Bibliography



Also published some under my other name, but that gets tracked elsewhere.

New and Anticipated Fiction

Just a Whim
Just a Whim

So, I have some very dear friends that are getting their stories out into the world, starting with Jocelyn Aitkin. I read Just a Whim for her in beta and I can hardly wait to see how it all turned out when she finalized it. I'll post a review here and on B&N when I'm done. (She also did the artwork herself. I'm trying not to be envious!)

Summerlight: a novel of Vardin is now one installment complete. Thanks to G. Jackson, my wonderful, wonderful beta.

Speaking of which, she is writing an absolutely amazing story that I get to read for her. It's not done yet, but already I'm waiting anxiously for when I can buy it.

Also, check out the new short story, a bit of flash fiction of one of the hunter daughters of Vardin, "Portrait of a Butterfly." Hope you like!
